This weekend felt exceptionally long, probably because it was a rather packed one. Started Saturday morning with a healthy activity – a run organised by McDonalds!
Firstly, it’s quite unbelievable that I signed up for a run. And more importantly, I actually woke up early for it. But since it’s only like 2.7km or something, and Karen and gang kept asking me to join them, I figured that I don’t mind going down to run in my pajamas. It’s pretty near my house anyway~
I was really prepared to run okay, which is why I even brought my track shoes back. But it turned out that everyone in front of us were just strolling, and in the end the ladies also didn’t feel like running, so we ended up strolling along with the rest =/
It was only towards the end then Karen and I started running, while Summer and Meow Meow were still chit-chatting behind~ As a result, they were caught on TV because they were strolling right in front of the minister that came for the event! Phew~ Luckily I ran -__-”
Ended the Olympic Day in just an hour or so and brought the ladies to the market for breakfast, since it’s my territory~ Managed to nap for a while (actually over-napped) before heading out again for NDP NE Show 1!
Still managed to reach on time even though I know I did not have to, cause I have already done my hair and makeup at home. Surprised that it didn’t take me that long to do my anyhow-bun. I really just anyhow poked hairpins here and there, and it turned out not bad, at least the front…haha~ I didn’t even bother to look at the back.
So glad that my Ah Boy is finally back after so many weeks! I think he MIA-ed for like 3-4 weeks? Although I’m very particular about commitment (attendance) for the rehearsals, I’m still so happy to hear him calling me “Jie Jie!!!” when he saw me! (:
Practised through a few times before dinner and one of my shoes actually flew off while doing a kicking action during the Hip Hop dance! Mad embarrassing and Ah Boy actually picked up my shoe and continued dancing with it, cause he didn’t know what to do with it! LOL! Totally reminded me of Chienny running out of formation to pick my shoe for me during NDP’ 04 when it flew off as well~
Practised at home the night before so at least I am so much more familiar with what to do now. I have been really confused with all the repeat this and repeat that and what to do for this point and that point that I had not been able to focus on the dance. Now at least I am a little more confident~
Still felt nervous before the show but thankfully everything went quiteee well. Did not make any major mistake except that the last map formation was still quite chaotic. The army guy actually told us that the map outline would be very thick this week, and it was, but it’s still so dim!
We totally missed it and everyone in my line overshot, and I did not know whether to join them or not. But it would look stupid if I were to stand on the outline alone, so I ran along with them. Who knows they actually ran back after realising that they have overshot! So in the end I was not standing at my usual position -.-”
I feel so sad whenever a show is over because it’s like we put in so much effort for the makeup, the hair and everything then within 5 minutes, everything’s over 😦 How I wish we can do it over and over again!
But of course I wasn’t there to rehearse on my own, I was there because I was waiting for Mr. Producer (but cam-op for the day) – Chin! He is the only producer that I still keep in touch with once in a while because seriously, he was one of the (few) nicest producers I worked with during my internship already~
Haven’t met him since I helped out for his Sheng Shiong show more than 5 years ago! He is the cam-op for the NDP show this year and even took a shot of me on purpose during the performance -.- But at least he really took it during the second half when I am more confident with the steps…hahaha!
Waited for him till the whole rehearsal was over because after rejecting his vodka dates for so many times, I know I won’t be spared this time round…haha! Off for some catch-up session after 5 good years…oh man~ Feeling so old now.
